Hey Craven! Yep born in Oakland so I'm a die hard fan. I moved back when my folks split in 84/85. My Dad used to take me to games all the time in the Rickey Henderson, McGuire, Canseco era. Some of y best memories.

I was there from 75-83. We had the whole place to ourselves...back when they served beer in garbage can sized containers - 3 or 4 gallons. Oakland was always good for a big rolling fight that swept across the bleachers - the early days of the wave.

When I moved to the NYC area I went to the A's games at Yankmee Stadium and enjoyed rooting against the home town bums. It was a glorious time to be at Yankmee Stadium as they sucked to high heaven from 84-90 while I was there.

Then I moved to Seattle and Ken Griffey Jr stole my baseball heart. Now I suffer endlessly because of it...but I had 4-5 years of grand baseball fun.
